About the EJIL

Welcome to the website of one of the world’s leading international law journals. The EJIL was established in 1990 by a small group of scholars based at the European University Institute, the Universities of Florence, Munich and Paris II and the Michigan Law School. The Journal has grown since then in size, strength and reputation, but the Editors’ original vision remains unchanged. About the EJIL
